LES saab 340 steering

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

so I have not long purchased the les saab340 and while still trying to learn the aircraft I have come across an issue that I cannot figure out how to fix.

How do I steer the aircraft when on the ground?

I have tried a few of my other x plane aircraft and they all seem to steer fine using the twist function of my x55 joystick but this does not seem to work on the saab

Does anyone who has this aircraft know what I might be doing wrong in getting the steering to work

 

thanks

Hi Mazelda I have the same plane. Look to your left in the cockpit, and you will see a large knob on the left console. with the mouse, that knob has to be pushed down. That is the tiller wheel that pilots use for steering. try that out, and lets us know how you do.

The LES SAAB is a great aircraft. Very realistic.

There is a metal looking knob to the left of captain seat next  to your parking brake. Once you have hydraulics powered up you can push that and you have nose wheel steering.

I hope this helps!

I must still be missing a step. I have the nosewheel lever pressed down, but the nosewheel is still free castoring. I can only control steering through differential braking. Do I have hydraulic pressure issue, or is there a different way to control the actual steering knob. Surely you don't have to do this with the mouse?

On the caution panel there is a message "nosewheel steering off" or something similar. When you depress the tiller this message should go away. Then it should work with your rudder pedals, joystick twist grip, or whatever you use normally to steer with...
